If you import other than lead-acid batteries batteries, you can report them to the same reporting system as lead-acid batteries, if you are also a member of Recser (Paristokierrätys). You can get more information about membership by contacting Akkukierrätys. Recser price list (Paristokierrätys) shows the recycling fees for all the batteries.
The recycling fee is charged by the tonne for all vehicle and industrial lead batteries put on the market. ‘Lead batteries put on the market’ refers to new batteries imported, lead batteries imported in new vehicles and equipment, as well as lead batteries imported in used vehicles and equipment, meaning all batteries that will end up being recycled in Finland at some point.
